The mechanism of alkali-catalyzed C/CO//2 reaction is studied by a Temperature and Concentration Programmed Reaction (TCPR) technique. The proposed redox mechanism contains three surface complexes: minus CO//2M, minus COM and minus CM. The oxide groups are the intermediates during C/CO//2 gasification. The completely reduced form, minus CM, is the end product of catalyst reduction and is the precursor for catalyst loss. The stoichiometries of these surface groups are confirmed by oxygen and alkali balance.
